I also had the beeping noise....reason was i didnt cut the wire off the parking brake wire and i only give it another ground, i simply routed another ground source.....with out cutting the parkign brake wire.....Okay... I have been reading this whole thread for a couple weeks and I decided to mod my 2009 Armada LE. I got everything wired using the single switch, 2 relays and diode. All is working, but my "Brake" light comes on one the dash and the "ding" sound alerting me to the e-brake being on continues to sound. Any advice? Thanks!!!!!
ok, I may have posted that in haste/frustration........so I looked back at post 264 and see that his (Shane's) reasoning is because he and it seems others want a diode light and he also doesn't like the DPDT switch he found and wants to use a particular switch he likes with a diode. without knowing what switch exactly he's using, i have no idea if a relay is needed with his switch, i would have to see how his switch is configured. either way, there are many many places online to buy DPDT switches, many different types, colors, etc....with and without lights....so pick and choose what you want....either way...with out the schematic on how it works, i cant comment unless you post it and ill review...many of the people who have this mod are not as savvy as you, so give us a break.
many of us bought these from people who knew how to fabricate them, so who are we to determine what is right and what is wrong?
i have had two units from shane on an 08 armada and now on my 2012 q. i may have been one of the first to get one made for the 2012 q...
